Getting RAD with Radical Ducati

Yes it’s true, Spanish-builders Radical Ducati closed their doors after fifteen years of building well…some pretty radical Ducatis. While their spirit is carried on by French builders Ducatiamo, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on the last ‘Rad 02’ build by Pepe and crew. The Rad 02 Metralla sums up everything we love about their signature style; a raw, lightweight Ducati stripped down to only the essentials.
